She has researched it well and documented the period through characters about whom most of us have little knowledge. The story and her characters are extremely believable.In reading this novel of triumphs and tragedies of ancient pharaoh, Aha, and his heirs, I couldn't help but recognize a parallel between this monarchy and some of the European monarchies of the Renaissance and even modern times.

    6. My first reading of this book was somewhat disjointed as there were things going on at home which distracted me for long periods of time. And so, when things started to settle down I went back and read it again. I am glad that I did.This book like a pyramid is resting on a very solid base of research and scholarship although there is nothing of dry scholarship about it. It is a story of fallible humans, some good, some bad, in conflict with each other through lust, greed and ambition. This takes [...]

    7. I received a copy of this book in exchange for review.This was a very well-written book. Everything flowed seamlessly, and the style was very easy to follow.The problem is that I had to follow a lot of it through our "headstrong" Princess Nefret, her main slave, and her lover. I have a much more fitting term for her than headstrong. Let's go with spoiled. Bratty. Infuriating. For the slave, Safaga, let's go with pathetic. For freaking Tasar, her lover, let's just skip the adjectives and kill him [...]
